Mu Dynamics Introduces Mu Test Suite for IPv6

By Anil Sharma, TMCnet Contributor

Mu Dynamics (News - Alert) (News - Alert), Inc., a major player in testing next-generation network services, has made a significant addition to its product portfolio with the introduction of the Mu Test Suite for IPv6. Officials with Mu Dynamics said that Mu Test Suite for IPv6 , which is designed for network equipment manufacturers, government agencies and wired and wireless service providers that need to ensure they can effectively support IPv6 (the next-generation of the Internet Protocol), enables customers to significantly reduce their time to test, and accelerate their IPv6 migration efforts.

Company officials said that Mu accomplishes this by taking a unique adaptive approach to testing NGN services, thus giving these organizations the ability to meet the looming deadlines for IPv6 migration in significantly less time than with traditional tools. Initial customers include Tier-1 global service providers, government agencies, leading network equipment manufacturers and others.

'As an accredited laboratory in delivering IPv6 testing for the USGv6 Test Program, and leveraging our extensive experience in managing the IPv6 Ready Logo program, the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Lab is using Mu's Test Suite to deliver automated testing for network protection devices,' said Erica Johnson, director of the UNH InterOperability Lab, in a statement.

Johnson said that with an impending deadline of July 1 that requires all government agencies to acquire networking equipment that is USGv6 certified, the Mu Test Suite helps the UNH InterOperability Lab automate tests that otherwise would have needed to be performed manually, saving precious time. Company officials said that a Tier-1 global service provider is using the Mu Test Suite for IPv6 to help migrate its internal network to IPv6.

Its transition team will be performing feature and resilience tests on over 200 service elements of the network over the coming months in order to find and fix high-severity issues.

Simon Berman, Mu vice president of products said that if Y2K was technology's ticking time bomb, then IPv6 is a slow, deadly gas leak. Berman said that service providers, government agencies and businesses everywhere are running out of time and IP addresses.
